Propolis publishes work that responds to the curiosity of today’s best booksellers and most enquiring readers.

As the publishing imprint of The Book Hive, Norwich’s multi-award-winning bookshop, our aim is to publish idiosyncratic work that ambitious booksellers want to hand-sell and book-buyers want to take away.

Believing in the beauty of printed material, Propolis places a large emphasis on quality production. Printed and bound to the highest spec, each book is designed by resident book designer Niki Medlik (previously Head of Jacket Design at Thames and Hudson).
